Alice Bennett chose The Sixth Form College, Solihull after studying at Tudor Grange Academy and quickly established herself as an outstanding student.
She took the challenging step of making an Oxbridge application and with her hard work and support from College secured a prestigious offer. She went on to achieve all A and A* grades in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths at A level, which enabled her to take up a place at the University of Cambridge to study Engineering at Homerton College.
“I applied to Cambridge because my AS grades put me in a strong position to make an application and the course at Cambridge is renowned for being very good. I’m taking a gap year before university, working at Mouchel in Sutton Coldfield in the waste water department and I’m really enjoying it. This year will stand me in really good stead for when I start university and for a subsequent career.”
